Côte d'allure – White Shirt Wednesday

retro inspired summer style

With the rev of engines and pop of champagne corks resonating across the globe from the Monaco Grand Prix, it came as no surprise, that the rich and famous descended on the European principality with some serious Riviera-chic styles in their LV overnighter.

Infusing the international fashion narrative with an iconic French coast cool aesthetic, summer style was kick-started with a strong (and undeniably alluring) retro charm. Toting timeless prints and authentic detailing from pit-stop parties to moored morning brunches, the style elite certainly gave the intrepid fashion wanderer something to gawk at.

A clean, contemporary take on effortless coastal attire, matelot stripes, Breton colours and summery straw all made their way back into the sartorial mix for destination dressing this season. A covetable wardrobe twist to try at home, embrace your inner Bardot and enliven your wardrobe with a fantastic 'tricolore' tribute to nautical dressing.

As refreshing as a cool seaside breeze, this contemporary take on classic shoreline attire is a wonderful blend of modern silhouettes and jaunty vintage vibes.

Using the ageless perennial VAUGHAN white silk shirt in Stark Naked White, this clear and fresh design is a versatile resort must that can be worn with any number of seasonal staples. Offset against a pair of quintessential mariner shorts in midnight blue, this faultless summer silhouette gently sculpts your curves whilst leaving you free to jump ship and explore the city at large. Designed with a flattering high waist and traditional navy button fronted design, this seafaring blend of blue and white is a new twist on coastal classics.

Worn underneath this beach chic ensemble is this stunning bright red bather with detail rope sash. A stand out piece that beautifully underpins the style ethos behind the côte d'allure trend, this vibrant swimsuit can be worn with assorted accessories or paired with these high waisted blue shorts for those beach to bar sandy moments to remember.

Matched with high-luxe accoutrements that have beguiled trend forecasters all season long, there could be no better time or place to pull of this sequinned straw hat than on the dazzling Mediterranean peninsular. Ideal for those mid-summer heat waves and paparazzi-shy trips to A-lister hot spots, this wide brimmed hat looks the part paired with chunky jute-wrapped heels and this #trending Saint Laurent raffia beach tote for added fashion gravitas.

Uncork the 'Bolly and set sail towards style with this beautiful array of high-luxe wardrobe favourites and silver screen inspired contemporary twists – aimed to unlock your inner Monaco madame!
